My name is Sirio Berati. I’m a 19 years old Albanian visual artist living in Montreal, Canada. I call myself a visual artist as I have been exploring many areas of art and variety of themes. Identity is for sure one of my favorites. It all started last year when I held my very first exhibition. Well, actually, it started four years ago when I got exposed to photography, but I call the establishment of my exhibition one of my biggest achievements, which officially identifies me as a visual artist.
My exhibition is called “Approaching Chaos” and itself talks about the change. Honestly, it is more complicated than that. My aim is to explore my ideas through different stages of self-development and show the process of adapting to the new world. It’s an exhibition which guides one to self-realization.
“Approaching Chaos” presents a typography installation, a human head sculpture, an acrylic painting, and 5 different digital photographic series: “Descending into the Blue Void”, “Blue Klein Sea”, “In the stormy sky” and finally “Impeded by cultural taboo”. Even though the pieces are significantly different in the way they are presented, unfold and created, together they follow a quite complex and a coherent narrative of gratification.
“Conflicting journey to reality”, seen below, is my most successful outcome from “Approaching Chaos”. This artwork was an award-wining piece in the national scale in the UK for the new emerging artists!
